Others often ask if I call myself a designer, and I wonder if the title matters. My practice is not cleanly defined. It involves close collaborations in the form of archival projects (Cyberfeminism Archive; Fact, Eros, Avant Garde with Lubalin Center; Whole Earth Catalog; et al), writing (poetry of tools, internet infrastructure, speculative archives), event organization (Decentralized Web Summit, RightsCon, meet-ups, lecture series, dinners), education (University courses and workshops), lectures (revisionist internet history, dynamic typography, feminism online), and sharing, typically in the form of spreadsheets. http://mindyseu.com/
